Attract Generational Renters Today.

Posted by Sarah Wattick on Oct 4, 2018 2:54:33 PM

In today's rental market, Millennials (80+ million strong) are the largest pool of renters. Gen-Z is not far behind as a fast-growing portion of the market. These generational groups prefer to rent rather than buy a home for multiple reasons. One of the most prominent reasons tends to be the amenity-rich offering of an apartment, such as common spaces and pools, on-site concierge, and typically located within an urban community. Trends and studies show that one of the most important amenities is technology. Millennials and Gen-Z will consider technology as one of their main decision-making factors when choosing a community.

The Mixed Perception of Bulk Services in the Apartment Marketplace.

Posted by Sarah Wattick on Sep 14, 2018 3:28:22 PM

In today’s market, there is a mixed perception of bulk broadband services. Some Owners and Developers want no affiliation with the video and Internet selections that their residents make. Some Owners believe in providing choice options of different providers for residents to choose from. These two schools of thought were very popular in recent years past. However, the market’s perception of bulk is changing based on segment. Markets including student housing and senior housing are somewhat predisposed to bulk services. While markets such as market rate and affordable housing are beginning to see the value. What’s true of all segments of the market is that Owners, Developers, Managers, and residents are curious about the Internet of Things (IoT) and connectivity.

Repercussions of the Net Neutrality Repeal.

Posted by Sarah Wattick on Jul 26, 2018 3:45:00 PM

At the beginning of the year, we discussed the Net Neutrality repeal and what it means for our clients. At the time of our discussion, with the ban being so recent, we were not sure the direction major ISPs would go. A major concern was that bandwidth consumers (you and me) of the nation's largest ISPs would lose or have limited access to content provided via Internet (including streaming services, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime).
